The March 1938 issue of Weird Tales features a single illustration, by Virgil Finlay, of one stanza of Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner.
“Like one that on a lonesome road
Doth walk in fear and dread,
And having once turned round walks on,
And turns no more his head;
Because he knows, a frightful fiend
Doth close behind him tread.”
I love the fedora!

For killing an albatross, the mariner and his crew are punished with drought and death. Amidst a series of supernatural events, the mariner’s life alone is spared and he repents, but he must wander the earth and tell his tale with the lesson that “all things great and small” are important.
